A Day at the Capitol with Wisconsin State Legislators

The Wisconsin Coalition for Cancer Treatment Access (WCCTA) 

New Event Date!!!  Wednesday, April 27th -- Registration for this event is now closed.

As you know, oral chemotherapies are often the best -- and many times the only -- treatments available for cancer patients. Unfortunately, the costs are often astronomical, making them difficult for many patients to afford.

The WCCTA coalition is seeking legislation that would increase access to oral chemotherapy, requiring health insurance plans to cover orally administered chemotherapy treatments at the same cost as intravenously dispensed, or injected, chemotherapy.

Please join the effort and the WCCTA for: 'A Day at the Capitol' on Wednesday, April 27, 2011.  Advocates from across the state of Wisconsin will visit the state capitol in Madison to lobby the Wisconsin Legislature and urge the passage of this legislation.   Lunch will be provided to you by the WCCTA coalition.

Registration for this event is now closed.  If you have questions or concern, please contact Kim Hughes at kim.hughes@lls.org
